I have gotten to know our painter over the last year. He is a great guy! After each job, I have given him a card to share with his wife. He really loves my cards. Kinda funny for a big black guy :) He asked me if I would make him some thank you cards to give his customers. I said sure thing. Then he said he wanted 50 of them. Lucky for me, I know how to barter :) I made cards for him and he is painting my bathroom. Win/win for everyone!
I did something a little naughty. I bought a product that we don't sell. I knew we didn't sell an embossing folder that looked like a piece of wood, but I did a search and of course they are out there. I got a woodgrain one and a brick one. The plus to this is, you have to have the Big Shot!!! You can get so many great products to use with it!
Anyway, here is the card I made for Russell.
Gotta start getting the house ready for me to be gone for a few days to convention. Boy...it's more work than being here! Can't wait to get on that plane and just relax for 4 hours on the way out to Salt Lake! I am sad that I will miss the Harry Potter opening though :)
